    Devil has changed this generation.
     
  3. Glad to see the redesign....hard for me to want/own/recommend a card with a big pentagram on the back of it. Always had pretty good luck with powercolor cards......I still have a functioning 2600xt agp....and a couple of the older diamond branded ones.

    I wish they would start designing graphics cards where the pretty side faces up....

    Nice looking card right there.

    Why, exactly? Sure, it's super cheesy, but not really any moreso than stuff like "Military Class" or "Republic of Gamers".

    This is a good looking card. Hope it has a 0RPM mode with the AIB’s.
     

  11. It's a first and second commandment thing. The pentagram is considered a satanic symbol by those of us of the christian faith (and worshipers of satan too). My computers are always naked and eye level, so i would be staring at it all the time, and i find that distasteful....about like i would a baphomet desktop background. It isn't as though i am some wuss that cannot stand being around such things (certainly doesn't stop me from playing doom), i just don't want them in my house or computer. Certainly i have no qualm with others of other faiths (and i can agree with anyone that believes in the absolute power of love, and the utmost sanctity of life.) But i would not display the symbols of their religion in my home any more than i would expect them to do the same for mine in their home. That was a slightly longer explanation than i intended.

    1st commandment : thou shalt have no other gods before me.

    2nd commandment : thou shalt not worship any graven image.

    For those unfamiliar.

    So let's not turn this into a religious argument.

  13. No worries, no plan on doing so. It was simply the best explanation i could give to the question. A moot point anyways.....I'm gonna get a Sapphire.

    I dislike the cooler..... It has to be possible to cooler the FX5700XT without using such a monstrous cooler. My opinion won't change unless MSI goes the same route.... If MSI can't get by with a 2-fan design, I'll believe it's not possible.

    Not really sure why anyone would start a religious argument here. His response was very straight forward and non-combative. He wasn't attacking anyone's religious views nor trying to push his on anyone else. I actually appreciated his response. His view should be respected and supported. I'm not religious myself and have no issue with the pentagram being displayed on the back of a graphics card, but I can understand why people who follow any of the various religions would have issue with it. I can even understand and agree with his unwillingness to display symbols of other religions in his home or computer. Closest I get to religious symbols is the cross tattoo'd on my back....lol

    God I see all these new GPU's from third party vendors and I just miss the old artwork they used to put on them.

    I really wish one of them would give in and take us back to the good old days.

    Remember this beast?

    Here is a great link showcasing some of the lost artwork, I mean its a silly thing and has nothing to do with the power of the card but they just look so badass.

    That ain´t happening probably never again. I mean, I can get behind the idea behind that art, put an image of a most likely super advanced rendered character just to relate with the graphic processing power of the GPU you are selling. What the f*** is the image they are supposed to slap on top of the gpu box... a photo? a breathtaking landscape? or a photo of Keanu Reeves in a landscape?... We have reached the point where we simply do not get impressed by any graphic thing or w/e a GPU related visual stuff has to do with a GPU, so better just slap the cooler picture and name and call it a day.

    Who knows probably gift us a lithography image of the GPU or sorts, but who knows? personally I could not give less f*** unless is pentagrams or spooky scary skeletals!!! CAUSE MUH MORAL GUTS HURTS!!!!.

    They are likely doing it for a semi-passive setup. Like all the 2060’s that are three slot. The fans rarely run.

    I hope they're supplying a support brace to hold that thing up.... Can't imagine that the PCIe slot can take a lot more weight....
